4. Pre-License Change-Over Issues

- DWG has expressed a desire to have a version of the redaction bot suitable for cleaning up copy and paste remapping and other violations. We will attempt to get an estimate of the amount of work this would require. Alternative would be to clean this bad data with traditional tools with the expectation of greater damage. (Development capacity is limited and work may take a while. Reply to DWG to see if we can get more hands on this.)

- Formal response to UMP Poland email. (pending)
